Must chapter be continuous clip in order to navigate using "next"?

I am converting a home movie (DV) to DVD and cannot skip from chapter to chapter. Instead, the “next” DVD command skips to the next individual clip within the chapter. So, should I merge all clips within a chapter to make one continuous video for each chapter? I am currently using WinDV (transfer) and TMPGenc for encoding.

Thanks

When you authored (what software did you use), I assumed you put some Chapter points in ? If you dont, it will just jump to the next clip if one exists.
